So, hey.

I understand why people would write this, but it irks me when people write "Don't just say hey" in their profile, when they don't have much else to go off of. Not to sound lazy, but I'm at a loss for when somebody says they're into walking and movies, with nothing really specific. 

"So! You go walking around here much? Man, I sure do love that walking!"

Asking questions about a photo or something else they like is what I try on a first message, but I think I could afford to improve in this situation a little more. I mean, I'm sure these people are interesting. But it just feels like a challenge to not come off as a bland "How are you?", or to get the ball rolling. 

What do you do?

Generally speaking, when a girl wants to date a pillow queen she'll be looking to date another girl.

You're not forced to message dull people, you know. Raise your standards. (If you're messaging based purely on pics, your ask-a-pedestrian-question approach is disingenuous and phony anyway -- not to mention unoriginal and boring.)

You and pretty much every other guy.

If someone has nothing interesting in their profile, why would you want to message them anyway?

Seriously, it's something that comes up a lot; guys will complain that women don't have interesting profiles and it's, like, totally unfair because guys have to have interesting profiles or they don't get messages, but then girls have boring or near-empty profiles, _forcing_ guys to write them boring crappy messages.

Well, no; find someone interesting to message instead. That way, it's easier for you to write an interesting message, _and_ you're rewarding the women who write interesting profiles instead of the ones who write crappy profiles, so you're not perpetuating the very problem you complain about.

So, they don't sound very interesting, and don't inspire you to spark a conversation.

Move on?
